I am going down to Florida to help out in the relief efforts next week, and was wanting to take some awesome quality pictures while there. Can anyone tell me, between these two cameras, which would have the best picture quality? I have searched high and low, read tons of reviews, but all I really want is for someone to tell it like it is. Thanks so much!

The Canon A-80 at 4mp is a best buy. Its current internet low price is $200. The Canon S-50 is somwhat smaller, 5mp, and a bit quirky, although it too is capable of excellent (just like the Canon A-80) digital photos.

If the choice was mine, I would purchase the Canon A-80. It is more rugged, dependable, and consistent.
